Thanks for posting on HCM,

Well the dark spot could be as a result of a hematoma or hemorrhagic cyst or a uterine fibroid which might be responsible for your pain. If that is the case, then your doctor might decide to go in for an operation or allow the hematoma to reabsorb while hoping that your pains do not get worst.
You just stay patient and see your doctor in next appointment for confirmation.

Hope this helps

Based on the information you have your IUD removed and found the dark area in the right side of uterus, having pain since last 3 months and had spotting of blood was noticed, you do have the positive history for the infection with IUD.

It does seem like an penetration injury due to the IUD, which needs to be evaluated further, for which a visual conformation is needed rather then ultrasound as its will not be as effective as the naked eye examination.

1) consult nearby OBGYN as you will need a vaginal examination (for visual check up)
2) In case of fever please visit emergency services as it will be a clue for underlying infection, and for treating it with antibiotic is necessary.
3) Please avoid sexual activity till it gets checked.


Hope it helps.
